A whrilpool is a large, swriling body of
water produced by ocean tides. When
hidden water hits any kinds of barrier,
it twits away and spins around rapidly
with great force. This creats a whrilpool.
Whrilpools can occur in small area where
a piece of land just out into a river, causing
water to swril around. They can also occur
in the middle of ocean when one current
meeting an opposing current, as when an
incoming tide hits the ebb current of last
tide. Strong wind can also whip up the
the water into whrilpools.
